This Girl Convinced A Boy On Tinder That She Was A Beet Farmer Using Quotes From "The Office"

"I have seen animals having sex in every position imaginable."

Posted on

This past weekend Caroline logged on to Tinder and matched with a guy. She'd just finished binge-watching the US version of The Office and decided to see how far she could go in the conversation only using quotes from the show. Mostly, it was all about being a beet farmer, just like The Office's resident weirdo Dwight K. Schrute.

Caroline tweeted about her conversation and it quickly went viral, with over 4,000 retweets and thousands of likes. Thousands of people tweeted back at Caroline, amazed at what she'd managed to pull off.

"Most people think it's hilarious," Caroline told BuzzFeed News. "The majority of the responses are definitely positive. A few people have said that it was mean of me to continue with the conversation when he was trying to be nice and make conversation, but it was all in good fun and no one's feelings were hurt."

@caro_bearo He didn't even need convincing. He was ready to believe.

@caro_bearo @ItsAJoshParty this is the greatest thing I've ever seen

@caro_bearo @jayxilynn he said that's awesome 😭😭😭😭

Caroline said that once the tweet got near 5,000 retweets she messaged the boy again to let him know she wasn't actually a beet farmer.

"He thought it was hilarious and that it was cool that it was getting so many retweets," she said.
